Sit down, get comfortable & enjoy – they’re three steps flyers will easily be able to follow on Virgin Atlantic’s A330-200 aircraft after they undergo sleek makeovers.

The carrier unveiled new interiors for its A330s, which were introduced to the fleet in March this year, including an all-new look and feel for Upper Class, a refreshed Economy Class AND the inclusion of a Premium Economy cabin.

Describing the refurbishment as exceeding “high standards”, Virgin Atlantic’s Vice President of Customer Experience, Daniel Kerzner, said “exciting” changes were inspired by feedback provided by guests.

“In only a few months we’ve been able to source, design and manufacture new cabin interiors, which is a true testament to our teams and their focus on giving our customers a truly Virgin Atlantic experience.” he said.

“When life gives you lemons, we say – make sparkling lemonade!”

So what sweetened acidic beverage has Virgin Atlantic created?

From November (when the changes will roll-out globally) guests will be able to book one of 35 Premium Economy seats on the aircraft.

Each Premium Economy ticket holder will fly in a 38” seat pitch and enjoy bespoke food and drinks.

Those in Economy will see red and beige tones added to their seats along with new leather headrests.

And travellers booked in the Upper Class will each have direct aisle access and appreciate additional personal seat as well as new natural and soft Espresso leather seating.

Upper Class flyers will also continue to have the choice of choosing their ‘perfect suite’ in either the Love Suites (located in the center of the cabin), Corner Suites (window seats) and Freedom Suites (aisle seats).

Regardless of where travellers are seated, they’ll all see Black Cherry curtains and carpets throughout the aircraft, along with mood lighting and wall refreshed bathrooms.

As the first fully wi-fi equipped airline in Europe, guests will also have access to high speed internet, as well as in-seat power and onboard entertainment.
